Oracle Integrates Nimbula’s OpenStack-based IaaS Platform Into Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud

Oracle today announced the integration of its March 2013 acquisition Nimbula into its Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud platform. The integration of Nimbula into Oracle’s public cloud offering means that customers can build IaaS infrastructures based on Oracle’s Exalogic Elastic Cloud in conjunction with Nimbula’s OpenStack-based IaaS technology. Today’s news marks the first time that OpenStack and Oracle’s high performance Exalogic Elastic Cloud are available on the same platform. Customers now have access to a highly scalable, high performing infrastructure that additionally boasts all of the attributes of the open standards-based OpenStack platform. Moreover, Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud customers can leverage a suite of other products such as Oracle Applications, Oracle Fusion middleware, Database as a Service, Java as a Service and Middleware as a Service. The successful of integration of Nimbula’s OpenStack-based IaaS platform with Exalogic marks yet another small victory for OpenStack, which recently faces stiff competition from increasingly rich and variegated product offerings from VMware and Citrix, not to mention Amazon Web Services.
